That was the news – Week 14, 2008: Seven days in Liberty City news, the week GTA IV hype hit top gear
The last week in games news was dominated by one game and one game only.
Yes, Relic announced Dawn of War II, and yes, it looks great. It looks as though another Thief’s on the way, and that’s fine. Even news that journalists had been to Konami Japan and finished MGS4 just bounced off the surface.
In the grand scheme of things, it was all filler. Nothing came close to GTA IV’s impending release as an attention generator, nor will it for the foreseeable future.
